Weekend plans, made.
Nothing freshens up the facade of a house like emerald-green shrubbery. Thanks to their versatility, boxwoods are a perennial favorite among traditionalists and modernists alike. Long associated with French gardens with clipped hedges demarcating shapely parterres, the small-leafed bush is an obvious choice for adding formality to any house facade. Yet its sculptural nature also lends itself quite nicely to minimalist settings.
Beyond just their style, boxwoods serve many functions in landscaping, from framing an entry and edging a walkway border to surrounding an outdoor fountain to marking off a shady flower bed. And, they require less maintenance than you might think: although they require watering and mulching, boxwoods do require regular tending, unless you opt for a super-sheared look.
Whether you're craving something formal or a little more low maintenance, let these beautiful boxwood landscape ideas inspire your next weekend project. Happy planting!
